Trigger frame breaks easily
Trigger works well, but while cleaning the marker the whole trigger guard snapped off. The guard is very flimsy, I barely touched it with a rag and it snapped off. The Rufus Dawg double trigger only lasted two games until it broke. The trigger guard seems to be made of very soft plastic compared to the Tippmann double trigger
My other A-5 has had a Tippmann double trigger on it for over a year, and haven't had a problem with it yet.

Cheap product ,I felt ripped off paid to much at local shop for a trigger that felt weak & brittle.
My trigger broke at adjustment screw after three uses so I got screwed out of some cash .Also since their is no warranty they dontstand behind their product. It felt wobbly & had
to much movement side to side.
Do not but this cheap plastic junk. it belongs on a airsoft pistol not on a tippy.
It is not milsim quality,the trigger guard is to thin and makes me feel like babying my
gun not diving into the bush for an ambush.over the quality isnt what I expected.
Buy a different trigger,this is low grade plastic product designed for looks not use.
wait until RF puts out a metal version until then avoid this cheap plastic trigger.
Got an A5 in a trade on pbnation and it had the rufus dawg level 2 upgrade on it which includes this product. I aired it up went in my backyard expecting it to be ok, and not that fast since it's an A5, but this thing rips, it was a hell of alot better than my brothers up'd ion, and kept up with my other brothers stock evil pimp. Once you get this the only other thing you'll need for your A5 is a barrel.
Definitely worth the money, not even that expensive for what all you're getting. This gun keeps up with all the others on the field now. Giving a 9 b/c could have more modes.
To answer the previous reviews question, the rufus dawg is not to be used with a RT trigger. The same the happened to me when I had the RT and the airsmith laughed me outta the store...For the egrip however, it works excellently..if thats a word. After you install it into your trigger, I suggest putting the stopper up as close to the activation point of the trigger as you can. Then start practicing. I've had it for a while and I can do about 10-12 bps. My friend an I both have them, and we love it. There is almost no need to buy a speedball marker with this trigger. It is second maybe only to the JCS blade trigger, but I haven't tried it.
Good trigger for the price, i highly recommend this because it is great to make your A5 rip with the best of them.
I hate to be negative but here goes it...
As I said before the plastic is cheap and very weak. It turned my gun into a single shot. The trigger somehow didnt let the gun recock itself. I know because i swapped out the stock and R.D. trigger a few times and the same thing happened. i also have the R.D. wicked bolt which I have a review on. Overall my experience with Rufus Dawg's quality has been a 1 out of 10.
Please do not waste your money on this trigger. It probably NOT make you happy.

I got this trigger to dial in the "sweet spot" of my responce trigger, which it did perfectly. now i don't know if they didn't intend it to be used with the responce trigger but it snapped in half at the trigger stop adjustment screw after about only 8 games. at the time it was the only other trigger for the a-5 without an e-grip, yet had adujstments. for now im happy with the stock.
If you realy feel like wasting money on a cheap p.o.s. try it, other wise there are allot better triggers for just alittle more$
A-5, double finger E-grip, Flatline, PHAT reg. ,macro line, drop forward, R5 hopper, also building a cocker its base right now.
Now the plastic is stronger so the trigger is too.
The plastic was weak. (Was)
This is a good trigger all my friends have them. I think they woek great they do on my gun. i have alot of Rufus Dawg stuff on my gun and it works great. i ewould recomend this trigger to any one ive had many compliments on it.. I cant wright 50 fricken words.
Can cause major problems with overall gun performance
I was really excited to get this product. I am new to paintball and I loved the idea of having a double trigger (for looks and performance). After I installed this trigger my gun stopped working. I was told that it was sized incorrectly and it caused the gun to shoot once then you either have to wiggle the trigger or recock the gun to shoot again. If left on for a period of time, this malfunction could become permanent. Fortunately I was able to reinstall the stock trigger before that happened.
Bad experience with the product. I'd recommend a different trigger.

Tippmann A5 with low pressure kit and Egrip (with Rufus Dawg blade trigger) and a JJ ceramic barrel
Speed, quality and easy to set up
I use an e-grip on my A5 and was quite happy with my single trigger. I bought the Rufus Dawg blade simply to put on my stock trigger frame in case my e-grip went down. I had nothing to do and felt like messing around with my gun so I put the blade trigger on my e-grip along with a shortened Bic pen spring to lighten the pull. Installation was a snap. The only adjustment is the set screw on the trigger to shorten the pull. You can adjust it with the frame on the gun.When I went to test it I have to say I was truly amazed. I can now walk the trigger with ease.
With no exaggeration for $20 I doubled the performance of my e-grip. A definate 10 in my book.
Tippmann A-5, Flatline barrel, Pure energy 3000/45 compressed air, Rufus dawg double trigger, Jt x-fire thermal mask
More room in tirgger gaurd, adjustable trigger stop with set screw
Wobbily and made of plastic.
When I bought it in the store it seemed as thoe it was made of metal next to the GTA trigger due to it's shiny like finish. How ever it is a this thin little PLASTIC trigger. I think had they made it wider and not necicarily thicker it woulden't wobble so much. I think if i put a washer in the trigger asembily that that might help some. I was hopeing that by getting this trigger I would be able to feather the trigger. However anyone with an A-5 knows that the draw on the stock trigger is too great to acomplish this... I still think it will help me to get more bps then before but not quite what I hoped it would be.
for $20 I guess it was a decent purchess I just wish they had spent a little extra in it by makeing it cast aluminum or any metal for that matter. and figured out a way to do away with some of the creak that tippman has in this gun. I think maybe having a e-grip and this trigger may do the trick but then again I don't know.... Yet!
